Vista Del Lago High School Reviews

My experience at Vista Del Lago was honestly great. All teachers have different ways of teaching, but some in particular have a special connection with their students, that I feel makes them want to learn. Although the educators don’t get paid for after school hours, I have witnessed teachers that have stayed until many hours after school to ensure that the student is comfortable with topics (I have personally stayed until 7pm getting taught math) . Another characteristic that the school holds that helps many students is the College and Career Center. In here, students can get information on many different colleges and are allowed to print for free. This is important because not every student has access to printers at home and not everyone has money to be printing documents. Some things that I would I would personally change at VDLHS, is the enforcement on keeping the restrooms clean. Even though there are rules stating to keep the restrooms clean, students apparently don’t care.

Although only a Junior who is leaving for a high school-college school, Vista Del Lago is an overall okay to good school. It really depends how focused of a student one is to find the right crowd to hang out with and the right academic programs. The teachers are just fine at doing their job. Some are a little crazy and talk about irrelevant things to often but it’s up to the student to decide how much they take from those learning experiences. The math department has some extremely good teachers and some that are questionable. The academic programs that are offered are sometimes hard to find when you don’t associate yourself with those who have big plans for later in life. However, many programs are extremely beneficial. As an overall high school, I’d say you’d get an average experience there and if you want something more than you have to work for it.
My experience at Vista Del Lago has been so far one of the greatest experiences of my life. Throughout my years here, along with the involvement of extracurricular activities and academic involvement have added to the experience I wouldn't trade for the world. The staff is always willing to build relationships with students, allowing a comfortable and friendly environment while building healthy teacher-student relationships. If there's something i'd like to see change it would be the amount of activities that involve individual classes and students all together. Besides football games, seasonal dances, there's many more ideas we have that we'd like to execute in order to build an even greater experience for the students on this campus.
